TP0623-Dbwm. Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias taurus), large female swimming through baitfish near a shipwreck. Females are larger than males and often show small scars and wounds near their gills and along flanks, a result of the males biting them during mating. Feed primarily at night, with sharp re-curved teeth helping to catch and hold slippery fish and squid prey. North Carolina, USA, Atlantic Ocean. Color photo converted to black and white. Rope in top left center digitally removed.<br />
